Meeting Description:

Workshop on the Distinction Between Phonology and Phonetics

Recent research in Phonology has tended to include more and more functional
explanations for phonological phenomena: distinctive features, inventories,
sound change, and sound patterning. Some functional explanations appeal to
processing considerations, others to frequency effects. The rest appeal to
phonetic (articulatory or acoustic/perceptual) grounding. The phonetic grounding
is included as basis or source of the phonological constraints, or it is
directly incorporated into the theoretical account to yield a
phonetics-phonology mix; or the phonetic grounding is the substance of the
theoretical account. Evaluation of these various approaches is hampered by a
lack of consensus on the definition of 'phonology' and 'phonetics'. The SFU
Phonology Fest seeks to clarify the definition, and may also address what makes
a particular sound property part of, our outside of, speakers' grammars.
